I came here with a friend of mine in August and I did not expected to be treated so bad. First of all I do not think that is nice to wait about 5 minutes for somebody to come to you. The waitress came to us ( she was carrying dirty dishes and did even bother to grab a menu)... More

Right at the beginning, I can not comment the food, we did not get so far to even get a table in a virtually empty restaurant! I have visited many restaurants and hotels in Switzerland and on my last day staying in Zurich, we wanted to have lunch at the Restaurant Opera. But how do you feel being a guest... More

Excellent food with friendly servers. It is pricy but well worth it for my last meal before I left to return home. The lamb was cooked on a cooking stone and was the best that I have ever tasted. The 4 sauces were Devine! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

It was a real pleasure experiencing such a variety of food servings in Restaurant Opera: You can find beef fish and chicken nicely presented dishes in a way you can not stop eating till the last piece. A perfect restaurant in zurich with friendly staff and beautiful decor..

I have been to many poor restaurants, poor food, poor decor, poor service. You name it, I have had it. But no words can describe the shock I had when the restaurant manager answered his mobile whilst preparing to serve and kept talking while serving the main course at our table. There was no sign of any 'Excuse me, I've... More

We booked this restaurant mainly because we were staying in Hotel Ambassador a le Opera, one of the SLHs of which I have always been a fan. The hotel met our expectations but the restaurant was entirely something else. When we saw the 20% discount voucher in our rooms we should have taken the hint and cancelled the booking. Yet... More

Dear “Peter-the-Egg”. I am sorry to hear that we could not meet your expectations. A restaurant is like a stage: The audience expects the actors to do always their best; above all there should not be a suggestion of fatigue if the performance was already showed before. An outstanding act will always be expected and it is the goal of... More

We spent a very nice evening in that restaurant. Food is quite good. They particularly have fish specialties, but you can also find meat dishes that looked nice. Service is efficient and discreet. Of course, prices are rather high, but it's worth it, and Zurich isn't a cheap place anyway.

My friend and I ate at the Restaurant Opera twice.

Saw a wonderful ballet and had a wonderful meal not too far away. Very interesting decor. Reservation needed. Staff attentive and did not rush us. Appealing presentation of food. Enjoyed our fish, very tasty and not dry. Their salad was fresh with a large assortment of cheeses, tomatoes, peppers, etc. Food is not heavy. Close to tram for convenience
